Okay okay so I'm back…
Well, I felt a bit of a wimp really. Now that it's warmed up and I've discovered just how long it actually takes to walk from Canley and how boring it is... I got back on the bike again this morning. so much nicer!
And I really did hate paying £6 - yes really £6! - for a taxi from here to the station - obscene!
Anyway - I will be a good sensible girl and go by the crossings. No need for bloodshed just yet.
Thanks for the encouragement.
